Light Painting By Mother Nature by Gert van Duinen
Tonight it was Mother Nature steeling the show completely. It just couldn't be missed or overlooked. Oh boy, I've got a great series out of this thunderfest! I knew this was coming and I for these moments whole day long. Pure excitement, pure visual violence as storm gathered overhead, right in front, side and behind me. Multiple exposure times were made, varying from 10 to 200 seconds, and most of them contain lightening bolts. But the excitement changed into the urge for precaution because this stuff should be taken seriously. More so because I heard on the radio that one woman got struck and killed by this lightning of today. Therefore I want to dedicate this one to her and her family. Also I guess I saw some shorter form of a ball lightning this evening, but I'm not sure because I have no reference, unfortunately. I guess that would be the ultimate goal to capture such a scarce event. The only picture of ball lightning - or fireballs if you like - I know is one from a student in 1987. However, I've heard and seen several stories and examples - hoax or myth - of fireballs entering houses and small craters in gardens caused by this yet unknown event. I don't know, you tell me, but I believe it can be true.
